Hmmm...I dunno what you're talking about. The prices haven't changed. $155 for the Komodo and $109 for the KHS.

Hehehe...I did send them a price match offer on the Jamis for $100. I linked the URL to the Jenson ad for $155 and asked if they'd take $100. They responded with a lengthy email...it said "No".
